Oh neat. I just love Robert Graves's The Long Week-End, which is also popular/oddball history of the interwar years.

And I mean, this looks great also, not unlike the Graves book.

I love everything about this blog. Thanks, The Whelk!

Now if you will pardon me, I have to remedy my brain fag.

I don't like the layout much, but "Grinning at the guilelessness of the American Society woman" is going to be my next euphemism just as soon as I can think of something delicious enough to attach it to.

I can't read "Panopepton" without thinking of Foucault, though. On the other hand, he might have appreciated beef and wheat in perfect solution....

Oh cool, I just started reading this blog a couple weeks or so ago when some rabbit-hole of London history led me to The Worst Street in 1920s London. There's a lot of lovely stuff here.

This is great. Though I am now utterly terrified he's going to write about my favourite example of a Great War-enabled '20s chancer before I get the chance to. Gah!

See also Strange Flowers which often covers the same period/themes.
